the department of defense was run as efficiently as this. our deficit would be much lower. but among snap households with at least one working age nondisabled adult, more than half work. more than half work. and more than 80% work in the year before or after receiving snap. now, the legislation that the house republican leadership rammed through this congress and is now part of a negotiation on the farm bill, would cut the program by close to $40 billion. that would result in nearly four million americans losing access to snap next year, including working families with children, seniors, and veterans. nearly 170,000 veterans would lose their benefits. in addition, 210,000 children and these families would also lose free school meals. these cuts would come on top of the significant benefit reduction already experienced by all snap recipients as a result of the american recovery act moneys running out. and i would say to my colleagues that cut that went into effect on november 1 means is that the average family of four would see a reduction of about $36 per month in their snap benefit. we a
